Aretha Franklin Picks Jennifer Hudson For Biopic

Published: Sunday 28th Jan 2018 by David

Aretha Franklin has spoken…and the name on her lips is Jennifer Hudson.

Good news below…

Franklin is eager to see a biopic which tells her story in a favourable light produced and has revealed that she would like Ms. Hudson to portray her.

Backed my MGM, the movie has been in the works for some time and now seems to have received a fresh set of legs as its producers edge closer to finding its cast.

Deadline reports…

Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party is always the hottest ticket before the Grammy Awards. Tonight he dropped an exceptional surprise. Davis tonight introduced Oscar and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson to sing a couple songs, and then told the audience that Hudson will be playing Aretha Franklin in an upcoming biopic about the life of the Queen of Soul. Hudson was in fact hand picked by Franklin to play the role. It was appropriate that Davis introduce all this, since he has such a long professional relationship with Franklin.

Harvey Mason jnr, one of the brains behind 2006’s ‘Dreamgirls’ , is to produce the project alongside ‘Straight Outta Compton‘Scott Bernstein.

A due date is yet to be set.

    This movie has been written and in production since 2010 when she picked Karen Clark Sheard and Halle Berry to be apart of the movie. Jeniffer was supposed to play Areatha 3 years ago. They’re just now making it official?
